School funding is key to equitable education, and the best way to protect school funding is through policy change. Even in challenging times like these, a push for increased federal assistance through policy change is vital. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities reported that 47 percent of school funding comes from the state, 45 percent comes from local governments, and the rest comes from the federal government. When domestic revenues are not enough, the international community should provide aid contributions (ICESCR, 1966, Article 4; CRC, 1998, Article 4 and 28 ).
If an institution claims that anyone, regardless of their educational background, can obtain a degree, be careful. School’s typically make such information readily available for prospective students to enable them to contact the school for enquiries. Instead, students are charged per credit hour, by class or semester. If you are required to make a full payment before starting your degree, heed with caution. Having to make a full payment for your degree in one bill is a likely sign your institution could be a diploma mill.
Yet this March, we in higher ed had an additional reason to focus on the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Supreme Court heard oral argument in NCAA v. Alston to decide whether college athletes may receive some forms of compensation for their efforts -- an increasingly vital issue of fairness and equality. The court's ruling did not address the larger - and contentious - issue of whether student athletes can be paid. It's difficult to view big-time college sport in the US, with its celebrated March basketball tournament and billion-dollar autumn American football competition, as a bastion of amateur athletics anymore. That could have undermined the NCAA's argument that an adverse ruling would drastically alter the landscape of US college sport.
529 plans involve investment risk, including the possible loss of funds. Earnings must be used to pay for qualified higher education expenses to be federally tax free. The earnings portion of a nonqualified withdrawal will be subject to ordinary income tax at the recipient’s marginal rate and subject to a 10-percent penalty. By investing in a plan outside your state of residence, you may lose any state tax benefits.
Video helps make distance learning feel personable and helps keep students engaged. Instructors can tailor distance learning to suit students’ diverse educational needs. And it provides students with the freedom to learn anywhere, at their own pace. They vary by synchronous or asynchronous course structures, though. The flexibility of asynchronous learning allows them to create and consume content when it’s convenient for them and learning materials can be accessed at any time, anywhere.
